This really is a combo of Days 3 and 4 kind of melding two Card Scene tecnhiques into one

I used a Stencil, Viva Las Vegas Stamps, Brusho’s and Royal and Langnickel Tubes and also Canson Watercolour paper which I totally love for brusho, I know this is far from perfect yest I could have added more light and shadow to the buildings but I kind of wanted this a bit like a movie set rather than the real deal so to speak

As always a The amazing Tim Holtz Tag

oct tag

I had so many ideas for this when I started and they all sort of flooded out of my mind when it came time to put the tag together.

So you get a scaled down more simple version. Using Mostly Tim Holtz and Ranger products with a little Fairy Dust glitter sprinkled in for good measure (actually I decided the tag lacked sparkle)

Oh My goodness it feels like time flies and I am always doing things at the last minute lately

I totally love the technique for this months Tag and had a basic Idea I wanted to try though far less colourful

I love the stencil I used from crafters workshop (and can not wait to get my hands on some of Tim’s I have one on its way here atm) everything else, the inks, the stamps is all from the Distress and Tim Holtz lines of products.

I sat with it for 2 days and as much as part of me wants to add to this I so love the simplicity of it I have decided to leave it be and let it be simple.

I really love how the spooky trees stencil works so well with the distress browns. I adore this elephant stamp and have been itching to use it since I got it for a bargain price on ebay (under $10 can you believe I got that set so cheap)

 

Anyway this is my Tag: Hope you enjoy it!!

Creative Chemistry Day 2 Mixed Media Layering

Have to say I kind of regretted going over the last part with the blue but live and learn

For all the Day 2 techniques I used a combination of stencils from: Kaiser, Donna Salazar Designs, crafters workshop, Cheapie shop ones, and Home Made using Plastic Packaging and various Tim Holtz Dies

Can you believe how fast this year is flying. I feel like I am constantly behind in projects.

And here is my Journaling pages, I do not as yet have any of the Layering stencils so improvised using some

Crafters workshop, Kaiser, Donna Salazar, glimmer screens, and one or two stencils found in local cheapie shops and one home made stencil made from Tim’s big clock die and some plastic packaging

I also used home made mists, distress ink in various colours, Picket fence stain, Modeling paste (as I have none of the Stuff Tim used as yet), Various Tim Stamps, A blending tool, Archival Jet Black ink and some chit chat stickers.

Here it is:

I started with a crafters workshop clock stencil, and added modeling paste, then used the Donna Salazar Stencil (spotty heart) with the picket fence stain. A bit of a learning curve and had to refer back to the tutorial hence th smudges and mistakes

and then I misted and layered and layered and played and layered a bit more, added in the butterflies, stamped and kind of just played.

It feels a little chaotic to me, but I think I like it anyway. I love that it is yet another way I get to step out of my safe little comfort zones.

Anyway almost time for October and my birthday 🙂
